  • Beogram 5000 distorting / skipping on new 180g records

    Good evening Beopeople, For the last year or so, I've been having problems with my Beogram 5000 and new 180g records. I'm using an SMMC 4 (which is getting up there in hours, by the way). Many new records play fine, but I'm finding more and more of our newer records (mostly, if not exclusively...

  • 1500 type 5714 - options for new needle/cartridge

    Hi, I've been offered a Beogram 1550 (type 5714) but its lacking a needle for the MMC20s cartridge. I'm a bit new to this game, but I really like the deck so I'm wondering what the options are to get it working. From what I can find, a new cartridge is going to set me back £150 or more...

  • Beogram 5903 Platter Issue and How to Lock Down

    I have an old 5903 I pulled out of storage this weekend. It worked perfectly when I last used it many years ago, but now when the platter spins, it sounds like it is dragging on the base in some spots. The platter isn't warped, so I have verified that. I think the height of the platter needs to be...

  • Beogram 5500 makes loud clicking noise at returning tonearm to start postion

    Hi I have recently repaired a Beogram 5500. And I've come up against a problem that I can't seem to solve. When the tonearm returns back to the start position the mechanism makes a loud clicking sound. Which seems to be related to how far the tonearm needs to travel to return for example if the...

  • Beogram 4500 turntable tonearm not moving

    Decided to play a vinyl only to find the arm not responding to the operation buttons. Removing the platter i discover there is a white string with a small spring attached idlely laying amongst the other components. I am assuming this is why there is the lack of movement in the arm. Any advice as to how...

  • Beogram 3000 Repair

    Hi there Everyone. I am the latest owner of a Beogram 3000. My first turntable! I won this turntable on Ebay which was said to work perfectly. Traveling for 3 months I left the turntable packaged until I could set it up in a permanent home. I removed it from a very poorly packaged box to find the thing...

  • Turntable blocked

    What might the problem be on my Beogram 5500...? Here's a summary of what's happening: The turntable was going fine, then it just stopped, but I could still hear the motor whirring quietly. I pressed the red dot button to return the tonearm to its off position, but it didn't budge - it's...

  • 1974 Beogram 3000 (5241 model) manual operation

    When I turn the operation button to "On", the turntable goes into the automatic "30" mode, rather than just begin revolving the platter. Effectively, I have no manual operation function I'm sure that's not right and it feels as if a switch is sticking, or shorting with the...
